Golf Country
here are pics of my golf country i picked up today

its a rhd factory conversion also converted to a 1Z 1.9 diesel engine
apparently the vehicle spent most of its time in car shows in England before it was shipped down here
the engine ran bearings and the previous owner did not have the time to fix it as he lives in England and only comes here very seldom

Bad planning on your part does not make your issue an crisis to me
Bad workmanship by other garages does not entiltle you to better rates at me
Syncro, syncro , syncro and more syncro, this is the syncro way of life
